The Surprising Adventures of the Magical Monarch of Mo and His People


Published March 29, 2010


LibriVox recording of The Surprising Adventures of the Magical Monarch of Mo and His People, by L. Frank Baum.

The Magical Monarch of Mo is a set of stories about the titular king, his queen, and his royal children. The stories are uproariously funny, dealing with topics as absurd as a man losing his temper who then tries to find it, an evil midget who steals a princess's big toe, and an entire city filled with highly civilized monkeys! Join the Monarch and all his friends for a rollicking adventure, filled with fun for the whole family! (Summary by Miriam Esther Goldman)

Subject: Good stories, more for children. Mixed bag of readers.
I hate to find fault with librivox readers. After all, they volunteer their time and talents to create audiobooks for me to listen to for free. This time, though, I must say that one or two or three of these folks should have sat this project out. Others read quite well. The book itself is very much a children's book for children, not necessarily for both children and adults. Compare it to The Wizard Of Oz and you'll see what I mean. Still, taken on its own merits, it's a fun and funny book, just not a masterpiece.

Subject: Great stories
I could not understand the first few stories as the reader had a thick accent, which would have been ok except that she read very fast. Otherwise it was great.

Subject: Wonderful little book!
Both the stories and the readers are great! Thanks Libravox!

Subject: Uneven
The first four chapters are read at high speed in a monotonous monotone. Reader's heavy German accent is often difficult to understand. The succeeding readers are fine.
